On Saturday, April 29, 2017 — President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office — a rally took place in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Harrisburg is the state capital.

The Rolling Stones’ You Can’t Always Get What You Want was, as usual, the theme song. Of course, the lyric that follows is:

But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need.

Here is the RSBN video:

There were some protesters, however, they made little impact on the audience, some of whom were interviewed afterwards.

Highlights of Trump’s address include the following points. The president:

  • said that now was not the right time to label China as a currency manipulator [think North Korea].
  • stated that the last time a Supreme Court Justice (Neil Gorsuch) was appointed within a president’s first 100 days was in 1881.
  • said he would review international dumping of steel and aluminium.
  • promised to renegotiate or end NAFTA.
  • mentioned that coal output was increasing.
  • pointed out the huge uplift in the stock markets.
  • discussed the release of the female American held prisoner in Egypt and that of her husband.
  • said that NATO countries will have to pay

their fair share.

  • said that the United States will have

the finest military ever.

  • pledged that the Second Amendment — the right to bear arms — will be upheld.
  • is planning a decrease in tax rates, from 35% to 15% in some cases.
  • reiterated that there will be a repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
  • emphasised that, with regard to education, there will be an end to Common Core (from the UN Agenda 21).
  • pledged that Big Government would end:

We will end federal overreach …

  • And, with regard to employment:

It is a beautiful thing to watch … our jobs will come back home …

Trump promised:

hope, safety and opportunity …

His speech ended with:

The future belongs to you.

Indeed it does — to ‘We, the People’.

Accomplishments too numerous

The White House has an excellent page recapping Trump’s first 100 days.

Several sites have documented this momentous time period and the administration’s many accomplishments, which are too numerous to mention.

Fox News has a brilliant recap of Trump’s first 100 days, complete with notable videos and tweets.

Trump’s longtime friend, Republican operative Roger Stone, has a concise yet detailed list of the president’s accomplishments from January 20 through the month of April.

A detailed daily update of Trump’s accomplishments can be found at The author contributes to The_Donald.

The_Donald has a list of Trump’s fulfilled campaign promises.

Business Insider has a list of all his executive orders and executive memoranda.

Trump Meter has an ongoing updated list of Trump’s accomplishments as well as ongoing and future actions for his administration.

General satisfaction

An ABC / Washington Post poll published on April 24 showed that Trump voters were happy with him. That must have deeply disappointed both the television network and one of Trump’s biggest print enemies:

98% of those who voted for Donald Trump say it was the right decision, and only 2% say they regret their ballot, the poll shows.

Even libertarians are relatively relaxed. says:

At least he picked good people to run things.


If there’s something good to be said of Trump after his First 100 Days, it is this: he’s done what a good CEO should do by putting some of the right people in positions to do good things.

I think Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) will be proven right by the end of the year. He says that, by then, people might still not like Trump, but they will give him grudging respect for getting things done.
